Once candidates have been selected, click Edit Selected.


In the window that appears, click Send Tests.


Select a test from the dropdown, then enter the team members who will grade it. Click Send Test.


After the test is sent, the candidate's status changes to Waiting for candidate to submit test.


Tip: If you don't see a change in status, try refreshing your page.

The candidate then receives an email from Arctic Shores with a prompt to take the assessment.


After you send the test through Greenhouse Recruiting, the candidate appears in Arctic Shores.
